The distress pulser is a junk item in Fallout 4.

CharacteristicsEdit

The distress pulser is a device used by the Brotherhood of Steel to mark specific locations, or in the event of an emergency where a soldier or squad may be downed and in need of assistance. When active, it emits a series of blips to any device capable of picking up radio frequencies, which become clearer as the receiver travels closer to the source.
